Let Us Give Thanks!

I HEART Thanksgiving.. Getting to spend time relaxing with loved ones, Eating delicious food, & observing the spirit of gratitude that comes over everyone as well as feeling that reminder for myself! :) 

Gratitude is an amazing thing. Just showing appreciation and realizing your blessings puts beautiful vibrations out into the Universe that will in return make the Universe want to continue to shower those blessings upon you. It is another form of Karma & I just love that concept!

I have had quite the amount of trials in the past 2 years & believe it or not I am so GRATEFUL for them!! They have shifted me into the strong, driven, forgiving, woman that I am meant to become. Here is a list of just some of the things that I am thankful for & I would like to encourage you to write what you're grateful for in the comments - I would love to read it and it will be fun for us to inspire one another!

I Am Thankful for:
  • MY PARENTS - Their Values, Wisdom, Intellect, Support, & Love 
  • FRIENDS - Oh do I have the most genuine best friends anyone could ask for! I'm so lucky!
  • SUPPORT SYSTEM (oh my goodness I have tears rolling down my cheeks) I have SOOO many people with huge hearts that are in my life! You have NO idea how much it means when you know what I'm going through so you bring me a cupcake. Call me just to see how I'm doing. Hear that I am in the hospital so you stop in and visit. Put me in your thoughts & prayers. Travel 500 miles just to be there. Know that I am stressed so you give me a break. You are all so amazing & I hope you are reading this, because you know who you are! I love you guys & don't know what I would do without you!
  • LIFE - It is a fragile gift that is why we are in the Present.
  • FAMILY - I love my family with all of my heart. They are all so fun, down to earth, hard working, unselfish, and the most honest kind hearted people you will ever meet! I look up to all of them more then they will ever know. I am sooo blessed :)
  • MOTHERHOOD. The most life changing, amazing miracle in the world!
I wish you all a fantastic heart felt Thanksgiving. Enjoy the moment and make everlasting memories! xo Heather
